Welcome to Patient Lifts
Choosing a Patient Lift
Patient lifts are an integral part of the home care setting. They make transfers and daily activities easier and they help eliminate injury both to the caregiver and to the patient.
Manual Patient Lifts - These lifts are manual and completely operated by the caregiver. They have hydraulic assists, lessening the weight that the caregiver has to move. These lifts are appropriate when cost is a significant factor, the situation doesn't allow easy access to a power source, or if the patient lift is used for transferring the patient from one room to another.
Power Patient Lifts - These patient lifts are powered either through a standard electrical outlet or by a re-chargeable battery. The lifting is acheived through a hand control, eliminating any physical exertion by the caregiver. Power patient lifts also allow the patient to operate some functions independently as well. All of these models have manual back-up in case of power failure.
Patient Lift Accessories - Don't forget to get a sling for your lift. These are sold separately because there are a wide variety of slings to meet all transfer needs. Contact customer service if you require a specialty sling. We carry the full lines of patient lift slings from Invacare and Hoyer.
